Subject: Sumatra?
 

Anyone out there had luck with a sumatra single origin for espresso shots? I realize this isn't typical, but one time I tried a batch of sumatra from a local roaster and was getting really great results. Thick, syrupy body, very smooth.  Mellow and chocolatey in  macchiatos. This was about a year ago and I haven't since had the same luck. Wondering if it was just a fluke or that particular batch or variety.

There's a wide range within Sumatra coffee and I was very surprised when I roasted and cupped several Sumatra coffees from Red Goni this year that some of them were quite clean and sweet.  Some of these coffees were triple picked, well sorted and fairly clean for a Sumatra and made good SOE espresso, like Red Badger and Royal Badger.  Some may feel that these examples aren't a true representation of the origin if they lack of minimize the earthy, funky notes, but they were quite enjoyable.
